  • Greenville Federal Credit Union announces six new scholarships to be awarded in the spring.

    Greenville Federal Credit Union announced it will award six scholarships to Greenville County graduating seniors in the spring of 2022.

    The scholarships will be awarded to eligible high school seniors to help fund their first year of college or technical school. For the 2021-22 school year, one $5,000 needs-based scholarship and five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded. The scholarship application is now open online, and winners will be announced in April 2022.

    In order to qualify for a scholarship, applicants must:

    • Be enrolled at a Greenville County Schools school.
    • Possess a 3.0 GPA or above on a 4-point (non-weighted) scale.
    • Be a Greenville Federal Credit Union member in good standing.
    • Be a high school senior accepted on a full-time basis at a college or technical school in the upcoming year.


    The new scholarships were established as part of the launch of the credit union’s charitable foundation in November 2021. The Greenville Federal Credit Union Foundation exists to promote local prosperity by providing grants, educational scholarships, and other funding support for individuals and non-profit, community-based programs within Greenville County, SC, with a primary focus on youth and education.  It relies on financial support from the credit union and through donations from members, business partners and the public. Funding is managed through a charitable donation account by the credit union’s philanthropic partner, Carolina’s Credit Union Foundation, a 501(c)(3), grant-making public foundation supported by the credit union system in the Carolinas.
